Judge tosses Manafort lawsuit challenging Mueller's authority

Source: The HILL

A federal judge on Friday tossed out former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's lawsuit challenging the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

In her decision, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson wrote that a civil suit is not the way for Manafort to challenge actions by the prosecutors who are working for Mueller's office.

"It is a sound and well-established principle that a court should not exercise its equitable powers to interfere with or enjoin an ongoing criminal investigation when the defendant will have the opportunity to challenge any defect in the prosecution in the trial court or on direct appeal.

"Therefore, the Court finds that this civil complaint must be dismissed."

4. Who's Cohen's lawyer...?

"...a civil suit is not the way for Manafort to challenge actions by (federal) prosecutors..."

So who's Cohen's lawyer? And does he actually have a J.D. (Or a GED?)

9. That's funny; a J.D. (Or a GED?) I was thinking the same thing. The guy doesn't know whether

he should be in criminal court or civil court? Why doesn't he spend some of that money he made and consult a 'real' attorney. But then again, Cohen was Trump's attorney, so it appears that either they are all stupid or they obviously don't seem to understand the seriousness of the allegations against them.

5. Maybe he will flip now.

I think this was pretty much his only hope to keep the separation between himself and the evidence.

10. Always

avoid litigation when you can. The lawyers could be rolling you and you don't understand their language.
